Construction Safety Planning is a comprehensive and practical guide for those who design and oversee large and small projects. Designed to facilitate compliance with the new OSHA objectives, the book presents what questions to ask in order to avoid conditions that invite injury or death on site, how to integrate safety planning into existing design and construction scheduling, and how to involve all supervisory personnel as hazard hunters, so that timely prevention measures can be taken.
